What's on your plate?

What's on your plate?

Hello there, ladies and gents!

 

Keeping in line with all the fun and interactive threads asking about your most recent halls, items you have your eyes on, what you're currently wearing, what's your hair routine, and more, I've decide to branch out and ask:

 

"What's on your plate?"

 

The beauty world doesn't just stop at skin care and cosmetics, it also goes hand in hand with your overall health and well-being, so with that, I'm curious to see what we're all chowing down and snacking on be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or inbetween!

 

For those with apps that help count calories or to those who just want to keep a log, here's a place to share, possibly find and share some recipes, and even tips on maintaining a balanced diet.

 

Don't just share food items, but even drinks! I'm a huge fan of tea and at least have a cup of green tea a day (anti-oxidants) and drink plenty of water.

 

For lunch today, I had:

 

-Brown rice

-Steamed egg

-Steamed red snapper with green onion, sesame oil, and black pepper

-Gai lan (it's a type of Chinese vegetable/greens)

 

Now, tell me, Beauty Talk world, what do you have? Smiley Very Happy

oooo!  I've used pork rinds as breading for fried chicken (something I've only done a few times because frying is so messy and unhealthy!) but I thought if I baked them the breading would get soggy.  But that looks crispy.  Share your secrets, please!  Temp/techniques?

Re: What's on your plate?

OMGGGGGGGGGG drooling!!!!! @lyravega Chicken parm is my husbands favorite!! This looks so good..

Re: What's on your plate?

This looks amazing!

Re: What's on your plate?

Yum! Pork rinds make the best breading.

Here's a vegetarian vegetable burger. It fell apart, as I had a feeling it would. It tasted okay. Husband liked it more than I did. Guacomole and tomato slices on the side.

Re: What's on your plate?

If you went to a fancy restaurant they would have called your burger that fell apart "deconstructed" and could mark it up more Smiley Tongue

Re: What's on your plate?

Tonight we had ground lamb meatballs with zucchini and tomatoes, over rice noodles.

Re: What's on your plate?

My bf always makes zucchini and tomato stew, never thought of adding turkey meatballs to it! 

Re: What's on your plate?

Well actually it's lamb but any meat will do... Smiley Wink

Re: What's on your plate?

Wow, my eyes saw "turkey" for some reason....never made lamb meatballs before, so that sounds yummy and fun!

Re: What's on your plate?

Lamb meatballs are super good! It's hard to think of what to do with ground lamb because it's a stronger tasting meat. Making it into meatballs and adding tomatoes and other spices and vegetables is a good combo.

Re: What's on your plate?

Tonight was a fussier dinner (but also well worth it). I  made beef short ribs braised in porter ale with maple-rosemary glaze, accompanied by sauteed arugula and steamed millet. Drink was rose cava wine.

Tonight I made cube steak with caper sauce and some sauteed arugula and celery-root greens. The star of the meal was the carmelized celery root with juniper and honey.

FARMER'S MARKET HAUL TIME!!

It's been raining so much in Northern California during these past couple of months, I've been going crazy without my fresh, local, organic produce!20170216_135009.jpeg

We have Pink Lady apples in the first bowl. Garlic (yay! fresh garlic), yellow and red onions in the bowl towards the back. There's also a bag of dark raisins (for oatmeal) and a Eureka lemon (yum)

The big leafy greens are a couple types of chard.

Tomatoes on the vine.

Big fat brussel sprouts. Yukon gold, red and russet potatoes.

And the best of the bunch, the hen of the wood/maitake mushrooms as well as the ugly shi.takes. I don't discriminate, this is what they're called.

And in case anybody was wondering what almost a pound of maitake looks like, here's Henry
